Synthetic identity fraud remains to be a vexing problem for many financial institutions and organizations today. With its widespread impact and continuing proliferation, it is considered one of the fastest-growing types of financial crimes in the U.S. Significantly, without a comprehensive understanding of synthetic identity fraud, detection can become an increasingly difficult task. Although banks and other companies have been investing in technologies that offer help, financial crimes continue to surface, chiefly due to the lack of solutions that focus on detection and prevention.

To address the growing problem of synthetic identity fraud, banks and other financial institutions must integrate an effective and advanced platform that will cater to fraud detection and prevention while being aware of its scope and scale.

In this LIVE webcast, a seasoned panel of thought leaders and professionals brought together by The Knowledge Group will provide the audience with an in-depth analysis of the recent developments in synthetic identity fraud. Speakers will present a comprehensive discussion of emerging threats and provide best practices for detection and risk mitigation.

Key topics included:

  • Overview of Synthetic Identity Fraud
  • Trends, Statistics, and Characteristics
